My Imaginary Magazine Cover- J.Crew


Early Fall and J.Crew always seem to go together in my mind. So…before Danielle headed back to college, I had her pose in several seasons worth of J.Crew clothing for this imaginary cover. My cue came from the 1990′s issues.


Fashion details- J.Crew navy blue wool coat (2009), striped long sleeve shirt (2010) and pencil skirt (2011).
